Chosengaratsu Jokki (朝鮮唐津ジョッキ)
This is the Karatsu ware crafted by FUJINOKI, Yotaro (藤ノ木陽太郎).
It was baked in the climbing kiln.
Two kinds of glaze are mixed and that became good scenery.
The cup has no foot called "beta-zoko" at the part of base, and there may be a sense of stability.
It was finished with curved shape, so it's easy to hold.
Height : 13.2 cm
Diameter : 7 cm
Dohei kiln was build in 1981 and many fantastic Karatsu-yaki are sent to the world. Yotaro produces wide range of works like new Karatsu, dolls, instruments and other type of things.
